Dear CBAers,

V551 Sgr, a WZ Sge-class suspect for the last thirty years, has finally
popped into superoutburst, as shown by the superhumps detected by Roland
Santallo (of Tahiti).  This is a GRAND target for the australites!  The
seasonal timing ain't perfect, but with a good longitude spread, we should
be able to solve for the basic period structure.

Definitely top priority in the southern sky!  18 00 56.5  -34 35 45

Strike while the iron is hot!  VY Scl would be a good after-Sagittarius
